You must be the change you wish to see in the world.― Mahatma Gandhi Today, we enjoy an incredible number of applications on our smartphones. Not too long ago we had to purchase separate products to complete the tasks that we now do with one smartphone – a cell phone to make calls, GPS for the car, a camera to take pictures, a pocket calculator, a watch, an alarm clock, an odometer, and a heart rate monitor for exercise... In the 90s some of us even had a pager clipped to our belts and, in our pockets, we carried a Palm Pilot as our digital assistant to manage our calendar. This year Gartner has forecasted that more than 1.5 billion smartphones will be shipped representing a double-digit growth in sales over 2020. We take for granted the wide range of applications and the compelling value that the smartphone created for us through the technological innovation of unification.
